Our May 13 Speaker, Robert Gray has published a book: Shoring Up Ourselves: An Inspirational Story of Never Giving Up

Robert Gray, our May 11 speaker on Response to the 9/11 Attack on the Pentagon has just published his book available on Amazon. Here is the Amazon link:


Here’s a brief description:

As a fire department captain living about a mile from the Pentagon, author Bob Gray led a team of firefighters to battle the fires caused by the passenger aircraft when it struck the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. He was then reassigned as a collapse team leader until the structure was safe enough to be handed over to the FBI investigation teams. Never in his wildest dreams did he think he would be faced with anything quite as perilous and challenging. But he was wrong.

Ten years later, shortly after retiring from the Arlington County Fire Department as a battalion chief, a routine home-cleaning project nearly took Bob’s life.

Shoring Up Ourselves: An Inspiring Story of Never Giving Up tells the story of how Bob’s perseverance through his challenging recovery forged a driving passion to help inspire others fight for their own recovery, conquer challenges, and never give up.

You can get your book autographed at our May meeting!
